I hadn’t even seen any racing yet and I was already seriously excited about the weekend ahead of me.

I have this old English car thing. There is no cure or twelve-step program. The only therapy is a constant flow of rusted English steel and cracked fiberglass. I’m convinced it was Dad’s fault. It started when I was still in diapers. He was the first on our block in the ‘50s to own a foreign car. I think he was way cool before way cool existed.

And so it went with one Triumph besting another over the next few years until ultimately, the Gyronaut X-1 entered the scene in 1966. The fairing, designed by famed stylist Mr. Alex Tremulis (he worked for Cord, Duesenberg, Ford, and Tucker), was built by Mr. Vince Gardner (of Cord 810 fame) and would eventually set the bar for future streamliners...

My father was a race car driver and could race anything on four wheels, I think that's how I learned my love for cars. Since then, I haven't looked back. This is my fifth Mini and I bought it from a man about to begin a full rebuild. But the car had no rust at all and the chassis numbers are intact on the floor! So I bought it. I just love the classic look, history, handling, sound, and usability of the car.

With trains roaring past on the tracks above, Pav skidded and drifted across the wet concrete, giving his beloved Land Rover a much-needed bath.
